    TheCrazyLex , Jun 1, 2017 :

    We’re really excited to announce that we are releasing our Nougat flavour of Paranoid Android. We have a lot in store - with a mix of both features & improvements.

    First & foremost, we have moved our code base to be fully CAF based. This brings many improvements to your device. The key improvement here is that Qualcomm hardware is better tuned on the CAF base and with our additional optimisations we can provide a smooth and fluid user experience that will let you enjoy using your device without any lags.

    On first launch you’ll notice a clean setup with a beautiful wallpaper from Hampus Olsson who’s teamed up with us again and created several beautiful pieces of artwork. For those of you who don’t know, Hampus is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work stands itself and we’re glad to have him onboard. We have also added several new features and made improvements to the UI of the system that we believe would enhance the overall experience.

    We’ve been working hard on redesigning this key feature of our portfolio and we’re really happy with how it has turned out. The whole design has been reworked and it fits in well with the overall feel of Google’s Material Design. This gives you the opportunity to use more gesture based control for navigating, rather than using the standard Navigation Bar at the bottom of your screen. Expect improvements and additions in the future.

    Color Engine
    We’re proud to announce our newest feature - Color Engine. Color Engine allows you to seamlessly change the colors of your device to be in Light, Dark (Pixel) and Black modes with a variety of accent colors to choose from. This makes changing the theme of your device really quick without having to install any extra packages on your device.

    Pocket Lock
    This feature prevents any form of accidental input when your device is in your pocket by disabling input sources. You can simply release Pocket Lock by long pressing the power button as highlighted by the minimal UI incase of any sort of obstruction or dust on the sensors.

    Accidental Touch
    Accidental Touch is a feature useful for many, especially the gamers out there. It prevents any sort of accidental touch on hardware buttons while the touchscreen is in use. This means you won’t experience any unexpected behaviour while playing games, web browsing or even when attempting to reach your finger out to the edge of that humongous display

    Major features:
    - Reworked Pie
    - Color engine
    - Immersive mode
    - Buttons customization (including navigation bar)
    - On the spot controls (OTS)

    Minor features:
    - SafetyNet Compatibility
    - Battery/Notification LED control
    - Recent tasks locking
    - Battery icon customization
    - Google now page in default launcher
    - Substratum (OMS) support (Color engine will be deactivated if you use Substratum)
    - Quick pulldown
    - Various performance and battery improvements
    - Display Burn-in protection (for OLED screens)
    - More to explore :)

    Device specific features for OP3(T) (List is being updated):
    - Oneplus 3(T) custom camera HAL: Resulting in better picture quality than OEM.
    - Implemented custom picture background processing leading to very fast shutter speed (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
    - Offscreen gestures
    - sRGB support (OnePlus 3(T) specific)
    - Alert slider customization
    - aptX and aptXHD support
    - Specific device performance and battery optimizations (details on this coming)

    Note: Custom kernels are explicitly unsupported and will cause issues
    unless they state that they are AOSPA compatible or AOSPA based!

    As we're getting back into the thread game, keeping up with threads and updating them as per changelogs can be too hectic given our schedule. However, very detailed changelogs always go up on our Google+ page, follow us for constant updates!

    As always, we listen to what you have to say. Help us make PA better by submitting good bug reports possibly with a log attached. Submit bug reports and we'll try to iron out issues as soon as possible - it really helps a lot.

    Our device maintainers and CAF caretakers @TheCrazyLex, @xboxfanj, @arter97 and @thecrazyskull are right here at the OnePlus forums. Mention (@) them if you need some assistance and/or when reporting bugs.

    Cheers and #StayParanoid!

    Install instructions

    We highly recommend you to follow these instructions very carefully. Users usually tend to skip a few steps and eventually fall in trouble. Are you with me? Good. Let's get this train going.

    Just a few things to keep in mind first -
    If you're coming from another ROM / Stock, your system data (not internal storage) will have to be wiped. This includes apps, accounts, messages, call logs etc.
    There's been some users complaining about different GAPPS variants messing up installs and causing a ton of issues. Upon investigating it seems OpenGapps Mini/Nano work best.
    Understand that Paranoid Android is a custom ROM and it might lead to addiction as it's relatively good. We shouldn't be accused of anything just incase your cat starts drinking wine. Things get a little woozy in the Paranoid World.
    Some brain might be involved if things go wrong. Not a lot though, as much to solve what's 1+1.
    Okay let's get to the main bit.

    We recommend a full wipe.
    If you want to go the F2FS way, use ONLY
    @arter97 ’s TWRP.

    Flashing order:
    1. Back up to PC everything you would need (whole of Internal Storage including and not limited to
    Titanium Backup folder, Music, Pictures, etc)
    2. Reboot into OOS/TWRP Recovery
    3. Flash Arter's TWRP (would have to use Image File Option)
    a. Choose as RECOVERY
    4. Reboot into Recovery
    5. Format all partitions except the "internal" partition**
    6. Flash AOSPA zip
    7. Flash Gapps zip
    8. Flash SuperSu (optional)***
    9. Reboot System

    ** For F2FS on /data the internal partition needs to be wiped too.
    *** SuperSu 2.79 and earlier is confirmed to fail. 2.82 is tested and confirmed to be working.

    First boot time would be about 3-4 minutes on an average.

    In case you are encrypted, read on:
    11. If you were already encrypted, it asks for a password (pattern or pin), provide and if it goes
    through, great and go back to Step 5
    12. If you’re stuck, ONLY then read on…
    a. If in case TWRP doesn’t accept your password and says ‘Can’t Mount Storage’, you will
    have to use FASTBOOT from a PC to go further from here.
    b. Assuming you have FASTBOOT working and it recognizes your device, the following need
    to be done:
    1. fastboot format userdata
    2. fastboot format cache
    3. fastboot format system
    4. fastboot erase recovery
    5. fastboot erase boot
    6. fastboot reboot
    7. fastboot flash recovery <@arter97 's twrp>
    13. Reboot phone into Recovery
    14. In TWRP, Wipe – Format Data (Use Make f2fs).
    15. Install from Step 5 onwards.

    Where can I know more about @arter97 TWRP? Is it designed for F2FS specifically? And can I use it as my recovery normally even if not using PA rom?

    Someone mentioned in official TWRP thread arter's is universal. Will flash and check now.

    EDIT: Works fine with other ROMS, but not sure what's special, as the annoying startup delay on F2FS is present, as every other twrp.

    The special thing about his twrp is that we recommend to wipe with his twrp if you are using f2fs, otherwise you may experience issues (slowdown over time etc).
